    Hi! My family of four (2-4yr old girls) will be planning a trip late this year to stay at Art of Animation or Port Orleans. We are trying to decide between going the first or second week of December to see the Christmas decorations. any suggestions? TY!

    Hi Amanda!

    Walt Disney World vacationing in December is absolutely breathtaking! In addition to the beautifully decorated theme parks, you can expect to see plenty of incredible sights at all of the Disney Resort Hotels and I highly recommend taking the time to tour some of them!

    Historically, crowd levels will increase the closer to Christmas that your travel dates coincide. I've had the pleasure of visiting during the first week of December with my family and the second week of December during my training trip for the Walt Disney World Moms Panel. Of the two, the beginning of December after the Thanksgiving holiday guests returned home was an ideal time of year to visit and wait times for most of the attractions were quite short. You may want to check out the unofficial website for more information on this topic.

    By the way, I think both of your Disney Resort Hotel selections are terrific and you're sure to have a magical stay with either choice!

    Thanks for taking the time to visit us at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and feel free to send more questions our way in the days leading up to your trip! May your Disney vacation be practically perfect in every way!
